FENG SHUI TIP
How many times have you had someone tell you to 'just breathe' and 'let it go'? Every time I moan to someone about something that's really bothering me, I'm quite sure that I'll hear that same piece of empowering advice. On this 'Let It Go Day' I want to offer a specific way of breathing that will help you to stay centered in the energies of the day while also helping you eliminate anything keeping you from a state of perfect bliss and balance. Inhale, visualizing light beginning at your feet and traveling smoothly up the inside of your body until it gets to your eyebrows. Breathe this light into your body in five consecutive stages without exhaling. In the sixth stage you can exhale while seeing the light shoot out the top of your head, returning to the source of all light from whence it came. As you breathe, mentally hear the sounds of the Buddhist Six True Words mantra and be sure to visualize all corresponding colors as follows: Inhale one big breath and then immediately 'see' white light traveling from the bottom of your feet to your knees. Hear the sound Om. Next see red light traveling from your knees to your hips and hear the sound Ma. See yellow light moving from your hips to the naval while hearing the sound Ni. Green light goes from your belly button up to your neckline while you hear the sound Pad. Blue light goes from your neck to your eyebrows as you hear the sound Me, and lastly, see black light moving from your eyebrows and shooting out the top of your head going towards infinity. Hear the sound Hum. Now, do the whole sequence two more times for a total of three inhalations/exhalations. Now you're aligned and balanced and have increased positive Chi in your internal and external environments. So, it's time to relax and Let It Go!
